Alright, so I'm gonna start by saying that there's no way we can actually track all of these cases to the music festival itself... but it's a pretty big coincidence!
According to an online diagnosis and treatment website for herpes, there was a definite spike in treatment for the STI during the week of Coachella in the areas of Indio, Palm Desert, and Coachella Valley. But just how many cases warrants a "spike"?
These cases were also reported in areas in and around Los Angeles, Orange County and San Deigo.
Hope you were safe if you went to the festival!
